Oversized Star Baby Blankets

Since these turned out so fun, I thought I would share.
 

Now, I know most of you have probably already seen these, but I somehow just managed to run across a tutorial by Palak over at Make It Handmade for these Big Star Baby Blankets that she wrote up last year...

And since I have been on a baby quilt kick(yes it is all about instant gratification right now...) I had to try it. Let's just say that they were super fast, and fun to make. My friend and I whipped the two tops pictured above up in about 40 minutes or so. (Probably would have taken us less time...but we like to chat.) And I know they aren't finished yet, but I am working up the courage to try and quilt them on my sewing machine. A first attempt...so if it doesn't go well, my favorite quilter might find them in the mail.

Also, the whole oversized quilt block bug has bitten....I am currently digging up my favorite block patterns to scale up so I can make some more of these quick baby quilts in a few different designs. Yes, I might have a fever...it was a big bug!!!

Enjoy,
Bev
